M.F.A. in Film/Video, Music/Sound, Painting, Photography, Sculpture, or Writing
Founded in 1981, the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts offers an interdisciplinary program leading to the master of fine arts degree in one of six fields. For three intensive summer sessions, students live and work in an environment that encourages proficiency in their work and recognizes the importance of engaged discussion to the artistic process. In addition to the summer sessions, work toward the M.F.A. degree continues in two independent study sessions during the intervening winters. Students of the graduate school include active, midcareer artists, teachers, and professionals in other fields as well as recent graduates. The faculty is composed of working artists who are concerned with nurturing student artists and with the theory and practice of their own art.
